Lives and works in Munich

Since 1985 concrete painting:
For more than "three decades the artist Monika Huber dealt intensively with the main questions of pictorial thinking. In the field of tension between free gestural painting and strict geometric form settings, the master student of Günter Fruhtrunk created a wide-ranging oeuvre, which she consistently developed further in an ongoing process (...) Based on tense contrasts, Monika Huber (...) was concerned with the conflict between the spontaneous, immediate and the systematic, well-calculated, detached from any pictorial object." (Erika Wäcker-Babnik, Munich, 2011)

Since 2011 work on the Archive OneThirty:
From 2011 with the protests in the North African countries, the so-called Arab Spring, the media image coverage changed and gave the artist the occasion to deal more closely with this 'new' visual language. She directly transferred the procedure of painting and drawing, which she was familiar with, to the media image templates. Over the years, she has constantly developed hundreds of overpaintings/drawings of images from the news world, thus founding the archive OneThirty, which she continues to maintain.
